I visited this city for business. At the end of my business trip, I was lucky because the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Khadim Hussain, escorted to see the city hall. You will see the history of Bradford from the different perspective if yo happen to visit the place. It is the history which is told from the people who gave... More

This is a magnificent building, standing majestically in the middle of Bradford City Centre. It is a pleasure to see this building.

A fine example of Victorian architecture on a grand scale in front of which is now a modified fountain that has been adapted to allow little kids (and big ones) to paddle, a great innovation. Take the time on your visit to the Natioal Media Museum to step outside and see this and the Alhambra Theater, both less than a... More

We had a great meal here with two friends from London and they couldn't believe the quality of the food and the price, it cost us less than £30 for a 2 course lunch for 4 on a Friday lunchtime. The restaurant shared super views over Bradford city centre. You need to go into the visitor centre to get a... More

On the Tuesday evening, at about 9 o'clock, we walked... More
